|Cousin Silas - The Snow Imposed Silence - BFWrecordings|
Beautiful and chilled. 'The Snow Imposed Silence' is the wonderful new album from Cousin Silas. Many of you will know this music from his previous releases on Fflint Central, Earth Monkey and justnotnormal, as well as appearances on several compilations. But for those of you new to this artist, this is a lush, drifting ambient album. Think of Namlook or Tangerine Dream and you are somewhere close, though this album has a unique flavour...

|Thirteen [BFW206] - The Ambient Visitor|
The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites. A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts. The music is generative: each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself. I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood...

|The Dream - Bing Satellites|
The new experimental ambient EP from Bing Satellites. A heady mix of ambient dub and glitchy electronics along with lush strings and atmospheres. The songs on this EP, unusually for me, all came to life through different processes: Sleepwalking is built around the rhythms of a loop of sound put through a resonator. The sound I recorded when I stuck a microphone out of my window. At that moment, a couple of neighbours were putting out their rubbish...

|Red [BFW180] - Bing Satellites|
A selection of live, improvised recordings from March, April and May 2012, performed on piano, synths, flute and clarinet plus a whole host of electronic wizardry. My studio set up is constantly evolving and this album takes advantage of that. This album includes two early experiment with playing live instruments (flute on 'Voices inside my head' and clarinet on 'Denner's travels in harsh static') through pitch pedals...

|Album In A Day - BFW recordings|
On Saturday, 28 August 2010, several musicians from around the world each wrote and recorded a song.

The next day, all the songs were collected and put together as an album. On Monday, 30 August 2010, this album was released as a free download by BFW recordings. MUSIC: 01...

|The continuing adventures of Peter Jelp - Bing Satellites|
All music written, performed and produced by Bing Satellites. Something a wee bit different from Bing Satellites. An album of chilled, glitchy ambient music heavily inspired by All The Lost Souls, the collaboration between myself, Getzel and piper_ben. These two are as enthusiastic as I am about a wide range of music and exploring mew musical ideas. Although this is a solo album, this collaboration has meant I have explored new avenues that I may otherwise have never have stumbled upon...

|Of The Seven Seas - Bing Satellites|
CD / alternative download: www.bfwrecordings.com/releases/BingSatellites/OfTheSevenSeas/ A collection of quiet piano-based songs, recorded between December 2011 and March 2014. Available on gatefold CD and download. These songs are in part inspired by Tristan Da Cunha, the most remote inhabited island in the world. It can only be reached by a seven day boat journey. I find the idea of peace and quiet and isolation appealing but this place goes beyond anything you can imagine - a tiny volcanic is...
